Hello Unlikes,

To become the other half, we need to get it going.

I am happy to announce that Jolla's Sailfish subforum got moved up to be a primary in OS / Platform

AND

"Jolla The Other Half" was created in Devices.

Talk about Jolla as company goes to general and off-topic, please. We are here about Devices and Platforms not about Companies.

Regards
Chem|st

Don't know if I am in the right place.
Just wanting to know if Jolla with sailfish OS is a suitable replacement for the Nokia n900.
Will it have all the functions that the n900 had
And will Sailfish be as accessible as maemo is.

I don't trust poeple without a Nokia n900...I'm also supporting Apple 2016 or until Jolla fully refund or ship the jPad to all backers and supports!

"waited over a year for no tablet and then the same again for potential refund? inspires confidence!"

Collected from Jolla's website and the Sailfish mailing list:

[x] developer mode
[x] root access (no Aegis-like annoyance)
[x] proper (!) multitasking
[x] GNU/Linux
[x] Qt
[x] SD expansion slot
[x] 8 MP camera

And better than the N900:

[x] the base OS (Nemo) is open for anyone to contribute
[x] Qt5 and Wayland
[x] I2C expansion port for hardware hackers and 3rd party manufacturers
[x] multitouch screen
[x] LTE
[x] bigger screen
[x] runs Android apps, if you really cannot live without a certain app

Alas OTOH,

[x] no builtin hardware keyboard (I don't miss it)
[x] no X11 and no GTK (I don't miss those either)

A hardware keyboard is currently being built by people in this forum already.
